- An adventurer is building a sailboat out of thousands of recycled plastic soda bottles
- He plans to sail it this spring from California to Australia, a journey of 11,000 miles
- Expedition leader is David de Rothschild, scion of a wealthy British banking family
- Boat, the Plastiki, will be a symbol of how consumer waste can be repurposed
